The Kent Spitfire known as ‘Spirit of Kent’ from the Biggin Hill Heritage Hangar
The ‘Spirit of Kent’ better known as ‘The Kent Spitfire’ is a MK9 TA805 with the No. 234 Squadron colours. The aircraft flies in memory of No. 131 (County of Kent) Fighter Squadron. The Kent Spitfire will complete an exciting display over the Kent Showground on all three Show days.
Titan the Robot
Our old friend Titan will be back at the Show for Saturday and Sunday. This giant robot is a must see for anyone coming to the Kent County Show.
Free Pony Rides
Young visitors to the Show will be able to ride the ponies free of charge. Ash and Toby the ponies love to be groomed, pampered, glittered and plaited.
Vic Ellis’s roving One Man Band
Vic is popular with all ages and is a unique performer. Covered with over 20 instruments, he sings and dances to his own music.
Kentish Morris Dancers
You wouldn’t be at a Kent County Show without seeing a few Morris Dancers. Steeped in Kentish tradition, Morris dancing is often associated with beer and it is the link to hop gardens and brewing that has fostered a link with the county.
Browse, buy and be entertained at the Antique and Vintage Market in the John Hendry Pavilion. A vibrant area bursting with antique, vintage, retro, collectable, shabby chic, preloved, upcycled and bizarre items. Plus upholstery demonstrations, a chill area, music and quick craft ideas for adults and children – all with a bygone theme.
The traditional funfair is a nostalgic nod to days gone by when funfairs were built by craftsmen and travelled the country. The Kent County Show had an exciting blend of rides and stalls that tests your skills and give you plenty of thrills!
